of immigrants after the obama administration eagerly blamed the release of detainees included aggravated felons and repeat dui offenders on the sequester apocalypse, it's about time someone had the courage to question the recklessness, the stupidity of this decision. watch this. >> the release of aggravated felons does not rise to the level of something that the secretary of the department of homeland security should know about, what does rise to the level? if you release thousands of people every day? >> we release thousands of people every month. we operate in the system that we had 4 hundred and-- >> you don't blame it on sequestration? dui would be a misdemeanor, right. dui first offense? how about second offense. >> depends on state law. >> how about the states where you relle? did you release any recidivist drunk drivers? >> yes. >> how many? >> i don't have the exact number, but we have released many individuals who had dui offenses. >> repeat offender dui. >> repeat defender dui. >> and request reschedule to move moan around. the nation that you didn't want to rob peter to pay paul. you
for. what does it say that president obama is proceeding with that nomination despite some of the controversies that emerged when he they floated the trial balloon earlier? >> well, in washington we can tell a lot more about somebody's intent by what they do than what they say. what we've heard a lot said of the white house of late is that they're interested in reaching out to republicans and forming accords and looking to get past some of the partisan bickering that's gone on back and forth. what the president has done today in nominating mr. perez for this job was to throw down the gauntlet to republicans who-- for them, as you say, he is the embodiment of a kind of eralism that they say that the core of what's wrong with the obama administration. there are other people who probably share every bit of mr. perez's views as relates to the use of the law, labor unions, empowering labor unions, fighting against employers who don't want to offer benefits and union access. there's probably somebody who does all of those things, but isn't as controversial as mr. perez, but in ch

correction? with the rising economy and profits this rally still has legs. also in year three of obama care premiums and insurance costs are rising sky-high. so are taxes. and small business costs are reducing profits by as much as 65% according to one small business owner we will talk to tonight. and the virtues of a free market capitalism that we talk about every night on this show are now forbidden fruit at stanford university. a popular long running pro capitalist course at that school has now been cancelled. what is up with that?

to "weekends with alex witt." let's get to what's happening right now out there. as president obama heads back to the u.s., just about 90 minutes or so from now after the final stop on his mideast trip he visited the fables city of petra, jordan, this morning. and one major topic of discussion for the president, the civil war going on in nearby syria, and the massive number of syrian refugees now in jordan. nbc's peter alexander is traveling with the president and joins us from amman. so peter with a good saturday morning to you. how has this trip gone so far for the president in jordan? >> well, right now, alex, the president's enjoying the end of his trip. punctuating it, as you noted, with a trip to the celebrated archaeological site in this country known as petra. the focus of the trip has largely been on the future. but at least for the last couple hours he's focusing on the middle east past. advisers tell me this is actually a place that president obama added to the itinerary. a destination that he very much wanted to see. sandstorms delayed his travel yesterday. but today that's proving
korea. >>> well, tensions rising over the civil war in syria. just of course as president obama arrives in the region. >> that's right. the president is in israel for meetings with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. accusations by the syrian government and rebels of a chemical weapons attack have now raised new concerns. >> important to note there is no verification that either side used chemical weapons, but a u.s. lawmaker says there is in his words a high probability that the government did or is about to. >> we need that final verification, but given everything we know over the last year and a half i mike rogers intelligence chairman was under the conclusion that they were either positioned for use and ready to do that or in fact have been used. >> now, of course israel concerned about the war in syria just across the northeastern border. and these latest claims may increase pressure on the u.s. to perhaps get more involved in some way or another. >> for the latest on this situation in syria and president obama's middle east trip overall we have live reports now from john king in je
>>> it is time for "end point." cameron russell. >> yesterday, obama was overheard on the mike saying he was glad to escape congress. and i think it is a -- a sign of how polarized and insane our congress is, if he prefers the balancing act of israel and palestine. >> in an interview with jake tapper, so much for the charm offensive. but he also said he didn't take it personally. >> we're talking about how much polarization there is. one issue where there is less is the issue of same-sex marriage, which we are talking about a little bit this morning. the supreme court will hear arguments on tuesday and wednesday of next week on this issue around which now there is a little bit of a media frenzy much everybody lined up. people want to say -- people in public life, politicians, religious figures want to get on record now before these arguments, where they stand. hillary clinton this week, rob partman last week, a real moment. >> a historical, seminole moment where people feel the need to get on the record now. if you make a statement after next week, is that too late? >> i don't

everyone and welcome in, this is "the kudlow report." obama arrives in israel to cement our relationship with our great allie and he and netanyahu must deal with series issues. president obama is said that the use of chemical weapon this is in syria would be a game-changer. quote unquote, now back here the markets get back to rally mode. but, did the fed-head ever so subtly indicate an every so slightly less easy posture? that is my take and we will debate it later on. here is something that investors and businesses and consumers do not want to hear, it's a new tax on the internet. even downloads from ituness, who thinks that is a good idea? not me, here is good news "the kudlow report" begins right now. president obama in israel for the first same in his presidency, securing the relations with the allie in the middle east, here is what he had to say when greeted by benjamin netanyahu. it's in our fundamental security interest to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger and more prosperous and makes the world a better place. >> so question is, what exactly is the president hoping to
and dislike they have for republicans. a lot of it, i think republicans thought, well post-obama they would be able to talk more frankly with black people. go into these communities and neighborhoods and sort of make amends. but i think they are really underestimating the hangover of all of the disrespect. >> and the hangover of the paul ryan budget. that would disproportionately -- >> and also obama care which is amazingly popular. incredibly popular among african-americans, latinos and asian americans and the republicans want to repeal it, still. >> and eugene is right. it goes back to the central problem in the autopsy. and that is, this is, they're approaching this as a marketing problem. and that somehow if we change the color of the cereal box, that inside the cereal will taste much better and sell better. this isn't about hiring more walmart greeters, right? this is about having them come into communities with a different message. that's what's going to be fundamentally hard. look, i -- took part in a really long, tough primary in 2007 and 2008 with hillary clinton. it went the dista
. president obama arrives in israel for his first visit there as president. we'll go live to jerusalem in just a few minutes. back here at home, some republicans recoil at the party's plans for the future. the chairman is in the hot seat. he'll be here live to counter his critics. >>> plus, senate leader harry reid says democrats will not have an assault weapons ban in their new gun regulation bill. and that is not sitting well with one of the top backers. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, march 20th, 2013. the first day of spring. come on, you like this tie. it's colorful. this is "the daily rundown." i'm luke russert in for chuck todd who is in israel for the president. he'll be joining us from there in a few moments. president obama has arrived in the middle east to begin i had four-day tour of the region. but it's not all pomp and circumstance. difficult issues loom as the leaders prepare for meetings later today. but publicly, the focus is on what president obama called the eternal bond between the two nations. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel be

, president obama is on the ground in israel right now. it's his first trip there as commander in chief. we just saw the limousine pull up arriving at israeli president peres' home in jerusalem. one of many stops on his trip. the bulk of this visit will, indeed, center on israel where he'll try to make a connection to the israeli people. >>> all started 6:13 this morning eastern time when he landed in tel aviv. as soon as he stepped off air force one, he was greeted not just by peres but also benjamin netanyahu. don't exactly have a warm relationship, but here he is, the live picture with peres. and you see all the school children waiting american and israeli flags and we are told in a little while, oh, there he is shaking hands, greeting them from pretty excited kids. the kids will be singing a very familiar song tomorrow in english, arabic and hebrew. we expect to hear the president also, as well. he spoke earlier today about the special relationship between the united states and israel. and as they do a photo-op, here's what the president said a little while ago. >> i see this visit as a
on the ridicu-list. that's it for us. >>> breaking news, everyone. live pictures of president obama who just arrived in ramallah in the west bank. this is the second day of his trip to israel and the west bank and the entire region right now. he is scheduled to meet with palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas later today. you can see president obama with president abbas at this arrival ceremony in ramallah. it's already been an eventful day for the president in the region. two rockets did strike southern israel earlier today, about 60 miles from jerusalem, where the president was. no changes to the president's schedule, though, as you just saw. he has arrived in ramallah in the west bank. john king is helping cover this trip. he is in jerusalem right now. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning, john. this is a very important visit by the president. you heard when he was in israel yesterday, president netanyahu saying sure, i'll go back to the bargaining table. he urged the palestinians to come back with no preconditions. one of the preconditions of the palestinians was that mr.
. >> okay. thank you very much for that. coming up, speaking of political events, president obama makes his first official trip to israel as a u.s. president. this after a recent poll shows only 10% of israelis view him favorably. we'll be live in jerusalem with more when we come back. don't go anywhere. zap technology. arrival. with hertz gold plus rewards, you skip the counters, the lines, and the paperwork. zap. it's our fastest and easiest way to get you into your car. it's just another way you'll be traveling at the speed of hertz. >>> >>> now the tiny island of cyprus' finance minister is appealing to russia for help. fresh off talks this morning, negotiations were constructive but no deal has been struck for a loan or further aid at this time. steve sedgwick spoke with the finance minister after that meeting. here's what he had to say. >> a very good first meeting. very constructive. very honest discussion. we underscored how difficult the situation is and we'll now continue our discussions to find a solution by which we will get -- we hope we'll get some support from russia. >> in t
challenges against proposition 8 and the defense of marriage act. >>> president obama is back home in the u.s. he was in israel, the west bank, and jordan. >>> secretary of state john kerry remains in the middle east including meeting with benjamin netanyahu. he urged iraqi leaders to overcome sectarian that threatens the stability. let's go to kristen welker. what is the president saying about the trip to the middle east? how are they characterizing this trip? >> reporter: hi, alex. officials believe he set out to do. he also reaffirmed the united states' commitment to the israeli people. the israeli people were skeptical about that prior to the trip. and then there was an unexpected diplomatic victory where president obama, through arm twisting, convinced netanyahu to call turkey and apologize for a deadly raid against a turkish ship. that will be key in moving forward with issues like syria and tries to reopen the peace process in the middle east. so i think white house officials are feeling good about the trip. the big question, if you talk to experts in the region, is what is president
insurance. [ticking] >> in 2010, president obama canceled nasa's plan to replace the space shuttle in favor of a more modest program. and then congress slashed the funding for that. with the end of an era, 60 minutes wondered what would happen to the generation that put america in space. when the smoke cleared from the last space shuttle launch, we stayed behind in brevard county, florida, the home of the kennedy space center. what comes after reaching for the stars? as scott pelley reported in april 2012, for many in brevard county, the answer was a hard landing. >> all three engines up and burning. >> there was nothing like it in the world. >> and liftoff. the final liftoff of atlantis. >> arguably the greatest engineering achievement of man. at liftoff, it weighed 4 1/2 million pounds, its top speed 17,000 miles an hour. >> the space shuttle spreads its wings one final time for the start of a sentimental journey into history. >> it was built by the hands of people like lou hanna. >> it was the experience and the job of a lifetime. i was working on the pad one day with a friend of mine, a
is the name of the game in washington as president obama and republicans seek an illusive middle ground on spending and taxes. so far, the game is not going very well. >> is the grand bargain dead? >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. >> the president has sounded equally pessimistic about bridging the divide. >> it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is we can't do any revenue, or we can only do revenue if we gut medicare or gut social security or gut medicaid, if that's the position, then we're probably not going to be able to get a deal. >> while there's not much agreement there are plenty of ideas. washington is awash in budgets. no less than six plans are currently circulating on the hill. there is the plan from senate democrats, or the murray plan. it includes a one-to-one ratio of spending cuts and tax increaseses, as well as short-term stimulus. then there's the house democrats' budget, which pushes for $200 billion more
better. that report you're talking about highlighted how well the obama campaign did because they had workers in the swing states that practically had been living there since the 2008 campaign. >> and that perhaps is why we saw at cpac a wider diversity of types of faces speaking. 17 latinos, for instance that were on the rolls this time around. jackie, mitt romney only won 27% of the hispanic vote this time around. he lost the african-american vote and also asian americans in that round. now, in order to see a real change here, are republicans going to have to do more than stop using the language for, example, self-deportation which was used a couple times? and embrace really a wide-reaching immigration reform policy here? >> i think that's what you saw in part on this report. that was really the only policy area the report covered was immigration reform. they're also going to start pushing out their stars that are more diverse. i mean, they've already started doing it with people like marco rubio. senator scott from south carolina. they're going to try to get a lot of these leaders
. today president obama will leave for his first trip to israel as president. now, the white house is downplaying expectations for any major steps toward the middle east peace process, but of course the president's meetings and appearances have been very carefully orchestrated. he will check out the iron dome air defense missile launcher partially funded by the united states. he'll visit the dead sea scrolls at the israel museum in jerusalem to show he believes in the ancient jewish connection to israel. he'll lay a wreath at a zionist visionary theater tomb as well as slain prime minister's its ak rabin's grave. the president will have several meetings and working dinner with newly re-elected prime minister benjamin netanyahu. of course, no secret that the relationship between these two leaders hasn't always been a warm one. besides discussing peace between israel and palestine what a-- oe of the other major topics is iran's nuclear program. the president encouraged their leaders to move toward peace. >> now is the time for the iranian government to take immediate and meaningful s
, however. president obama meeting today with israeli prime minister netanyahu repeating his warning that syria would be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons, quote, or their transfer to terrorists. now, the stakes obviously cannot be higher for making the right call. joining us tonight is chief national correspondent john king who is traveling with president obama in israel. also fran townsend, former homeland security adviser in the bush 43 administration, she's currently on the cia's external advisory committee and former cia officer bob baer. this video we just showed from the assad regime, shown on syrian state television. want to show it again. it's supposedly a victim suffering from a chemical weapons attack. no one shows any physical signs of injury, no convulsions, no vomiting. at least three experts on chemical weapons quote in reports today say that judging from what they see here, it doesn't seem like a chemical weapons attack. knowing what you know about these type of agents and their effect on humans, do you agree? >> you know, it's difficult to tell without
made clinton, bush and obama ineligible for the presidency because of marijuana arrests. we'd have to reimagine president paul songis or president mario cuomo. now we're in kornacki land. those are not horrible options. what wants to choose a president from a list of guys who were young in the '60s and 7 os i'70 so stiff and frumpy they never tried it? arrests, for possession, not for sales, and for possession of marijuana, not harder drugs. why are we still conducting the war on drugs? criminalizing weed smokers, militarizing police and spending trillions to stop nothing. in the '70s, most criminalnolol experts concluded prison does not significantly deter crime and those with meaningful life opportunities were less likely to engage in crime regardless of the penalty, while those who went to prison were far more likely to commit crime in the future. prisons don't prevent crime. they create criminals. and america has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. what are we doing? happy monday. and now, my friend and yours, karen finney in for what's his name. don't tell me. don'
